3PMENTOR Program

In an effort to maximize the value of the 3PM Organization, and to assist new members in most efficiently assimilating into the organization and the industry, we have established the 3PMENTOR program. The goal of this program is to bridge the gap between new members and more experienced 3PMs. Participation in this program will help to provide new firms as well as those in the early stages of their development an opportunity to be partnered with industry veterans and to learn first-hand the tools of the trade, what it takes to be successful, and what pitfalls to avoid. This program is designed to create an immediate connection between new 3PMs and more established 3PMs. 3PMENTOR Fact Sheet. Please download and submit the Mentor Program Participant Application.
